Good job Kato. Hastings is a great hire.

Maybe Blais is sticking around longer than he lets on.

What is this introducing a candidate to the media and not naming him the coach? An open session with the media?

Maybe they want to gauge crowd reaction, and other fan reaction before pulling the trigger, so no matter what they can make a decision that makes people happy. Seems pretty stupid to me, they should be able to figure it out without having this circus sideshow.

I'm very interested in seeing what Shane writes about this on PucKato. I think we'll understand more of what's going on.

Hard to pass on the opportunity now, for nothing more than the possibility of an opportunity later. I'm not convinced that UNO is one of those premiere programs that it is worth waiting around for with to much uncertainty with how things will shake out with the NCHC and if UNO slots as a perennial contender in that league.

Hastings is the only finalist they're announcing right now? What is up with that? Sounds like they're putting all their eggs in the Hastings Basket (for now). Let's hope he accepts if an offer is made.

I can't figure out why you leave a program, going into one of the premier leagues, you are almost guaranteed to be the next head coach in the next five years to go coach at a program that is joining the rest of the leftovers of college hockey.

Lets just say I would be very surprised if Hastings left.

Because it isn't guaranteed that he will be the next head coach at UNO when Blais leaves. Add to that UNO could end up as a cellar dweller in the NCHC. There are only 59 head coaching jobs in all of D1 hockey and they don't come open all that often (Listed teams that are in or will be in the WCHA):

FSU: Daniels 20 seasons
DU: Gwozdecky 18 seasons
UMN: Lucia 13 seasons
CC: Owens 13 seasons
UMD: Sandelin 12 seasons
BSU: Serratore 11 seasons
UW: Eaves 10 seasons
NMU: Kyle 10 seasons
UND: Hakstol 8 seasons
SCSU: Motzko 7 seasons
UAA: Shyiak 7 seasons
LSSU: Roque 7 seasons
UA(F): Ferguson 4 seasons
UNO: Blais 3 seasons
BGSU: Bergeron 2 seasons
MTU: Pearson 1 season

Not a lot of turnover in head coaching jobs, when one comes available it's not an opportunity that can be ignored.

Lucia = Fairbanks ---> CC ---> MN

Gwozdecky = WIS (RF) ---> MIA ---> DU

York = Clarkson ---> BG ---> BC

Mel Pearson = Michigan Tech ---> Michigan [2015]

Almington's post says it best.

This is the only coaching vacancy at all of the schools. It's a rare opportunity, especially this year.

I think the difference is when you look at the names you listed, Blais is very likely the closest to being done. Which is why I can see why "It's Maverick Hockey Time" would have such questions.

There might be no guarantee that Hastings is the next guy but I think it is fair to say that the odds are pretty good given his connection to the area and the success he's had in front of the locals.

As of 5pm today, Hastings has accepted the offer. Just got a campus email from Davenport.

From article


"We are extremely pleased to introduce Mike Hastings as our new menís hockey head coach," said Dr. Richard Davenport, MSU President.

Weíre excited to begin this new era of Maverick Hockey under his leadership."

I love this quote..


"I am extremely excited to have been selected as head coach of the Minnesota State menís hockey program," said Hastings. "During this process Iíve been struck by the Universityís commitment and expectations for excellence and those will be our tenets moving forward. I believe we can win here and weíre thrilled to get started with this new era of Maverick Hockey."
